Reading in Class 2


In Class 2, we work as a whole class in our guided reading sessions to solve VIPERS (vocabulary, inference, prediction, explanation, retrieval, and sequencing questions) on our class text.


Reading books will be changed every week when the children have read with a member of staff also, when they have finished their book and would like to choose another, additionally, if they are not enjoying their book.


All of the children in class are assessed and we match our reading books with their reading ability. If we feel they have progressed before our next assessment we will move them on to continue their progress. 


Please make sure you read daily at home!

If you read three times a week and it is written in your reading journal, you will get 10 credits on our reward chart.


Our PE Lessons

PE sessions will be on Monday PM  (Active Fusion with Mr Johnson) and on Friday AM (Dance - Ellie Street) 

Please bring your PE kit into school on Monday and leave until our final session on Friday when it should go home to be washed. 

One family, growing together in love and faith, flourishing in an ever-changing world. We love, we believe, we shine, we achieve.
